Lecturer in Economic Geography

Research Overview

My research and teaching sits at the intersection of human geography, urban studies, critical development studies, political ecology and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) engineering. Over the past 10 years, I've worked on interdisciplinary research projects on water and sanitation (infrastructure, services and governance), urban marginality and climate change, gender, participation and collective action (among residents of low-income, informal settlements), and on hazardous labour practices, including manual scavenging.
